Noul Neamţ Monastery, Moldova

Noul Neamţ Monastery, Moldova

Noul Neamt is an all-male monastery located in Chiţcani, geographically in Basarabia but controlled by the breakaway Transnistrian authorities. The monastery was founded in 1861, as a protest against the measures taken in United Principalities of Romania to confiscate monastery estates and forbid the use of Slavonic language in worship. In 1962, Soviet authorities closed it, the buildings then became a hospital. The monastery church was reopened in 1989. Thanks to Jaroslav.
